Fongoli Chimps and Brush Fire

In the first clip, two males are grooming at the edge of a fire that they wait to pass before moving on. I pan across the fire and show them sitting at the edge at the end. Subsequent clips show other chimpanzees in the vicinity of the wildfire at Fongoli, Senegal (my study site).
